Very nice. I like the purple lighting. Did you install, or came with? Glad you joined the forum.

Welcome to the forum. The 650 is a very dependable bike - perfect to start out on.

Thanks, I put the lights on and some other stuff. It had sat outside with no protection for I don't know how long, needs some engine work, mostly carb stuff, front fork springs, tires, clutch, and lots of cleaning. Here's what it looked like when I bought it.

I forgot to mention that they're rgb lights so I can set them to a bunch of colors

Some pics and a video I have from when I installed them, I control them with a wireless key fob. I actually damaged 2 of them with my bike jack and I'm gonna try to open and resolved them. It dosent look too hard. https://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/593f4373...616_144153.mp4
